About the Channel

Welcome to 7mate.

Take a seat and relax. Go ahead, kick back and put your feet on the table – it’s OK, you’re with mates now. No need to wash your hands. No need to take your shoes off. It’s time for you to reclaim the lounge room. 7mate is here, and it’s here for you.

In fact, why don’t you say hello to a few of the mates you’ll be seeing around here, starting with the funny ones: All new, first run episodes of FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD, and EASTBOUND AND DOWN lead 7mate’s primetime comedy schedule. THAT 70’S SHOW, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, MY WIFE AND KIDS, ACCORDING TO JIM and GARY UNMARRIED round out the laughs.

Reality TV doesn’t have to be girly TV. We’ve got the US ratings hit JERSEY SHORE, along with PIMP MY RIDE. We’ve also got MONSTER GARAGE with Jesse G. James.

Awesome documentaries and factual hits on 7mate will see series such as MEGA STRUCTURES, MIGHTY SHIPS, BUILT FROM DISASTER, AIR CRASH INVESTIGATIONS and MYTHBUSTERS in primetime.

Friday night is the home for big ACTION MOVIES and AFL then gear up for the V8’S LIVE on Saturdays.

So as you can see, there’s plenty of great stuff to watch here, and it’s just for you.

We think you’ll like it here.

7mate - man’s best friend.

Click here if you’d like more detail on our programs and scheduled times.
To receive 7mate from 25 September, you will need to tune into channel 73 on an HD capable Digital TV, PVR or set top box. If you have an analogue television you will need to connect your TV to an HD capable Digital set top box, PVR, or Digital recorder and tune in to channel 73.

''Until the switch-off of analogue at the end of 2013 each commercial television licensee is limited by legislation to one SD multichannel and one HD multichannel. These were the changes to the Broadcasting Services Act introduced in 2006.

After switchover, each broadcaster may transmit as many channels as they like but clearly this is limited by the amount of spectrum they have available to them. The allocation to each commercial broadcaster of 7MHz is pretty much filled up by two SD channels and one HD.

Therefore like Nine and Ten (from next year), Seven has opted to maximise the use of our available spectrum to provide diversity of programming for our viewers. Viewers will still be able to find a number of fantastic programme options presented in rich HD on our new multichannel 7mate. We encourage them to check it out.''

    Please, more classic US 1970's and 80's police shows! Charlie's Angels is the BEST.

    Hello 7mate, can you please advise your censorship status regarding the vile, defamatory 'N' word? On the 14th June you aired the Show Bad Boys 2 and did not censor that word. Do you realise other TV Channels around the world censor that word ESPECIALLY on free to air television? Do I need to remind you and take you through a history lesson as to how that word originated? I don't get it as to why you would censor the swear words but not that word? C'mon not cool!

    Who is this d$ckhead "Shep" calling the Shute shield on 7mate?? He is the worst commentator (I use that term loosely) that has ever called a game of sport.

    Hi, Any reasoning behind the showing of INK MASTER SERIES 1, again straight after Series 2, and not showing Series 3? Come on, if there isnt enough repeats between channels, and on these channels. Excuses please, and when can we expect to see Series 3, or do we need to fork out the money for Foxtel?? Regards Al
